Still Here

Hello reader.

I'm still alive.

Sorry I disappeared off the face of the blogosphere, but life has been particularly stressful recently.

At the beginning of the month we were supposed to go live on a new computer system at work. We finally went live two and a half weeks late, with no printers, no access to half our previous data, and morale at an all time low. It wasn't my job to implement the system (thank god!) I just had to carry on operating around all the crap.

On top of that, my wife's health isn't improving. The spinal surgery hasn't made a great deal of difference, so she's really down about that.

For the last two weeks I have been getting in from work, making a meal for the family, doing the housework and crashing out. I have never slept so soundly (at least the stress isn't keeping me awake ;) ).

Anyway, enough of my whining. Tomorrow is Kenny's charity tournament. I've made my donation, but don't know if I'll manage to play. I'm now on holiday a week, and we may be taking off tomorrow for a few days to get away from it all. Kids have got all sorts of commitments later in the week, so if we don't get off now we don't get much time. Looks like the turnout won't be great :( Hopefully Kenny will get that later miracle and the buy-ins will appear. If I'm here I'll be playing. I've even got the software running under Linux!
